o Actions:
 Provide responsible POI/CMO with evidence State of the Operator approved
them for Data Comm ops approval includes:
 A statement from the State of the Operator’s CAA showing:
o the foreign air carrier is approved for data link communication
in accordance with XXXX (ex. ICAO GOLD) criteria
o the aircraft and aircraft equipment are eligible and approved for
data link communication
o the flight crews are trained to conduct data link communication
 Approved data link system make and model (M/M)
 Each Aircraft M/M/S
 Procedures for using data link communication (flight deck user’s guide)
 Any other pertinent information (i.e. crew bulletin)
 After POI/CMO agree they have CAA authorization and they are eligible for data
link ops in the NAS
 Issue a revised A003 OpSpec
o N8900.303 & A003 template
 May 19th – published
o Information for Operators (InFO)
 InFO (Information for Operators)
 Prior to publishing, Mark needs:
 Flight Deck User’s Guide finalized (ops system)
 DCIT avionics configurations recommendations table
 Lessons-learned document
 Dispatch docs (ISD/CRD/SDB, end-to-end, etc)
 ACF 15-01 decision (charting options, airport pubs, etc)

o Daily Test Coordination Meeting
Forward Release Plan – Kevin Grimm and Gregg Anderson – TDLS Post IOC Build Release Plan revA



Through IOC monthly drop
o After IOC a big drop (3 months after)
Back log of PTRs to put into the system
o Will be able to start in approx. august
o Production End-to-End Appendix E material (DCIT proposed improvements) will be
included in next brief-out. Understanding that slots will not be available in all cases, the
proposed improvements will still be listed and noted with disposition not yet
determined.
See presentation for Consolidated Timeline
o June 17th Pegasus release, not June 19th
Benefits and Metrics Update – Chris Collings - DCIT41 AFS update 20150618 plenary


Benefits and Metrics Alignment
DC Program & NIWG Operational Benefits Mapping
o See presentation for metrics table
Sample metrics, using live sample data, will be provided at DCIT-42
Document Tracking – Andria Roney - Document Mapping_20150522_DCIT_sent


Objective
o Recommend an effective approach to provide linking between documents to ensure
alignment
o Recommend a process to maintain the alignment
Document Linking Strategy
o Add linking in DOORS for:
 E2E documents
 Use Cases
 Standards Documents (only applicable sections)

Document Change Process
o Origin of Changes
 The field - Sites/WJHTC
 Testing
 Addition of new capabilities
 DCIT recommendations
 OPRs Domestic
 OPRs International
o Current process in place to manage change within FAA realm
o Need to add DCIT stakeholders into current process
 Impact analysis
 Document updates to maintain consistency
o Change Tracking Process Chart – see presentation
Going Forward
o Leverage DCIT to identify links between DCIT documents to current DOORS
documents/modules
o Leverage Use Case team/NUT/FAA Engineering to identify links between Use Cases to
current DOORS documents/modules
o Leverage SE to identify links between CONOPS and Standards to current DOORS
documents/modules
o Recommend linking to either SSSD OR SSD level and not both. Use DOORS to show
relationship between SSSD and SSD levels. i.e., CONOPS currently shown as linking to
both ESSD, WSSD and SSSD
 Jesse approved this to move forward.
En Route Trials and Risk Reduction – Andria Roney - En Route Trials Status DCIT 41_Inwork



Objective
o The purpose of the En Route Trials is to assess the requirements, architecture,
interfaces, and message loadability with in-flight aircraft using the “as-built” Lockheed
Martin prototype in the conduct.
o This effort will enable route loadability testing with DCIT partners in operational En
Route airspace with minimal impact to controller and flight deck operations.
Route Messaging available in prototype for testing
o UM74 (PROCEED DIRECT TO [position])
o UM79 (CLEARED TO [position] VIA [routeclearance])
o UM80 (CLEARED [routeclearance])
o UM83(AT [position] CLEARED [routeclearance])
o UM137 (Confirmed Assigned Route)
o DM40 (Assigned Route)
o DM0 (WILCO)
o DM3 (Roger )
o UM169 (Free Text)
o UM117 – CONTACT [unit name] [frequency]

ZKC Meeting
o Met with ZKC
 Briefed ZKC Mgmt Team on En Route Trials Plan
 Collected PDARs and Sector Maps
 Observed live operations on midnight shift (2 pushes 10:30pm and 3am) and
collected times in sector, city pairs, and targets of opportunity data
 Significant flights west to east as well as east to west
 Collected strips for large number of flights
o WJHTC Meeting
 Teams identified
 Three NATCA representatives identified by Chad Geyer
 Additional support from Matt Maki and Steve Ferra (connection to Use
Cases)
 Meeting with FAA and LM
 Determined that we can use the Lockheed “VTL Display lab” for the
“home base”
 Provides optimal connection for the prototype with communication
needed to the FAA Global 5000 and telecom phone
 FAA Global 5000 pilots very engaged – will provide the coordination
with the ZDC and will file the flight plans that we work out for Increment
2 and 3
 Met with WJHTC and FAA Global 5000 pilots Jun 2
 Briefed En Route Trials Plan
 Discussed schedules and more details plans for performing tests
UPS Meeting
o Met with UPS June 3
 Briefed En Route Trials Plan
 Discussed potential flights that could be used for Trials for testing
 Looked at flight plans and discussed approaches
 Discussed potential flights that could be used for Trials. It appears that UPS can
potentially support 4 flights a week with one of their routes (west to east then
west to east pushes)
 Also looking at other flights as well
Schedule / Going Forward
o Implementation and Operations Plan – Final and accepted by FAA
o Coordination:
